Leicester City are hoping to finish a proceed for AS Roma winger Cengiz Under so as to add a new dimension to their assault, supervisor Brendan Rodgers has mentioned.

Under has scored 17 objectives and supplied 12 assists in 88 games throughout all competitions for Roma after his arrival from Istanbul Basaksehir in 2017.

“He’s a very, very good player. There have been negotiations with the club and we’re hopeful there,” Rodgers instructed reporters forward of Sunday’s Premier League conflict in opposition to Burnley.

“We need a different kind of attacking player to help out at the top end. Having watched him, he’s clearly a talented player. It’s clear we have pace and power, but I feel we need more football in there.”

“We need someone who can beat someone in a one-v-one, we need someone who can break down defences who are organised, when it’s tight. That’s the profile we’re looking at.”

Rodgers confirmed that James Maddison, who returned from a hip damage throughout the second half of Leicester’s 3-Zero victory in opposition to West Bromwich Albion, is in line to begin on Sunday, however Ricardo Pereira is not going to be accessible for at the very least one other month as a consequence of a knee damage. )
